Cattails & Cookies

Early this morning, Mr. Man and L-Infinity took off for Chicago so the two smallish kiddos and I just chilled all morning. We read, did chores and had a brief visit with our friend Cori Adams and her baby, A-Cutie. They came by for about an hour. Love her! We even played three rounds of UNO and after she left, I even raced I-Dude on Mario Kart but of course, I couldn't steer to save my life!

After lunch and more "chill time", I watered my own plants and checked on the "budding" herbs more. And when the heat died down a bit (NOT!), we walked to our neighbor's to water the plants. These are what we saw along the way...

A bird in flight on a beautiful blue sky...
A pretty in pink Crepe Myrtle tree...
Cattails marking the path of the creek...
Two cute kiddos trying to endure the heat...
And a bunny hiding under a rose bush!

Glad I brought my camera with me! LOL

We also visited my friend Heather and made a playdate for tomorrow. I let J-Pony bake another one of her cookie mixes from the "grands" but since it was getting late, I finished mixing, scooping and baking it for her. But boy did she choose wisely! These are good!

GREAT, the very first batch of delectable, moist choc chip cookies I ever baked in the oven and it wasn't even me who made it. (A bit of a slap in the face huh? LOL) Want one?
Hope you all stayed cool today!

Your blog is like my mini Disney land vacation. I love visiting you, and I have missed stopping by this past couple weeks! Those cookies look great! My nephew and I did nothing but teach him to bake before he left, and unfortunately for my waist he was particularly gifted in the cookie department :-) He once ate nothing for three days straight but cookies, and my kids embibed heavilly in his four recipe yeild of delectable soft chocolate oatmeal cookies as well.
